Comments Thread For: K9 Bundrage-Ishe Smith and More: Pre-Fight Report Card
By Cliff Rold - It’s as quiet a title fight as one could ask for. It’s been as quiet a reign as anyone’s in the sport. Cornelius Bundrage, an alumnus of the second season of the “Contender” winning a belt in his late 30s had the making of a feel good story but inactivity and lack of access to big fights has meant a long time with a belt and few fights to show for it.
All he can do is keep winning and hope, someday, to cash in on what used to be a lottery ticket (a major title) and now often is just a guarantee to get some steady pay.
